I feel so undervalued at my job. I work my ass off and pick up other peoples slack, working above my level and still other people get higher praise. I don’t know what to do anymore. I want to give up.

It’s not always about what you know and what you’ve done. Sometimes it’s more about who you know unfortunately. Make sure to build relationships and “play the game” as they say

It’s times exactly like this that you don’t give up. I know exactly how you feel, but the moment you break through your barriers and challenges, people will not only recognize your achievement, but also respect you’ve made it. Other people are only cheating themselves for not giving you the credit you deserve, and you don’t have to live with that guilt

Agreed with the above, it’s also if you are liked by the management and people around you..

With so many new faces as Community Leaders, how do people feel about doing a zoom Happy Hour next Thursday? This will give everyone a chance to get to know each other, ask me or our CEO whatever is on your mind, and generally connect. Thinking like 730 or 8 eastern for our west coasters?

Why do people want to work for UMM/MF? I feel likes it’s a rat race follow the heard mentality with little long term upside (you get paid a bunch for two years but then what?).

In my mind a small younger growing fund is such a better opportunity — more learning, exposure, promotional potentially, and, hopefully, culture. What am I missing?

Hi fishes - I’m with an MBB as a 2y Partner looking to move to B4, for a bunch of reasons. In active conversations with two of them. While compensation levels seem similar for now, the other posts on this bowl suggest we end up making more at B4 than MBB. (Referring to the 1.5M number of a y4 partner at b4). What is the real trajectory that people here have seen at B4? And how much of that is bonus - base - other components?
